Summary
"Betsey Thoughtless is the story of the slow metamorphosis of the heroine from thoughless coquette to thoughtful wife. Ironically, the most decisive moment in this development may be when Betsy decides to leave her emotionally abusive and financially punishing husband; it is only after experiencing independence that she returns to her marriage and to what becomes her husband's deathbed. Betsy Thoughtless may be the first real novel of female development in English." -- back cover
